Is there a link between blocked outgoing email and web protection?

In general, is there a connection between web protection settings and the blocking of my outgoing emails? Here's some info I can provide. I have Windows 10 security including firewall protection. McAfee Safe Connect, McAfee Security Scan Plus, and Malwarebytes Premium. I know that is a bit much. I get my emails blocked at the Spectrum server each time I've had McAfee agents reset my settings because of small related issues. I can send the emails directly from Webmail. I just don't know what is causing the blocked email on Thunderbird. My outgoing port is the standard default. It works pretty much all the time until McAfee settings get reset. Any thoughts out there? Thanks.
